Advisory members sought for UDC water committee
May 9, 2012 —
The Upper Delaware Council’s Water Use/Resource Management (WURM) Committee seeks to recruit non-voting, advisory members to provide guidance on issues that regularly come before it.
The committee is responsible for supervising the council’s work regarding recreation issues, water resources management, natural and cultural resources, fish and wildlife, unique land resources, threatened and endangered species, economic development and tourism, and pollution control and abatement. Representatives from Upper Delaware River Valley heritage, fishing, hunting, conservation and wildlife organizations, river safety groups, livery and boating associations, law enforcement agencies, river recreation promoters and land use planners are examples of individuals that the WURM Committee is particularly interested in soliciting.
Regular attendance at the WURM Committee’s meetings, held on the third Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. at the UDC office in Narrowsburg, is welcome but not mandatory.
Interested parties should submit a letter of interest addressed to chairperson Tony Ritter outlining his or her background in a relevant subject area and providing contact information. The deadline is 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 12. Letters can be e-mailed to info@up
